Focuses for November

Hi guys! I hope that you’re all having a beautiful weekend. ❤ Today, I have one of my usual beginning-of-the-month posts to share with you! This one will be slightly different than the ones I have done in the past, this time focusing more on what I mainly want to get done in the beautiful month of November. If you have written a post like this yourself recently, let me know in the comments below! I’d love to know what you’re up to this month. (: Without any further ado, let’s check this out!

Focuses for November

~ Practice the piano. I have been really into this recently, mastering scales and chords and becoming familiar with traditional Christmas songs (I can’t wait for December!). I’m also watching a 10-video series on YouTube called ‘How to Become a Pianist in Ten Lessons,’ and I really like how the guy who did the series teaches and explains concepts.

Main Things to Accomplish: Master the minor scales and chords, learn to play a few more Christmas songs, finish watching the 10-video series, print out helpful charts

~ Keep up with digital photos. I take and edit sooo many photos every week, and they quickly get backed up! While I enjoy going through them and organizing the folders, it’s tedious work. However, since I didn’t do anything with them in October, I’d like to catch up on that this month.

Main Things to Accomplish: Get pictures off phone, go through the photo folder that has all pics that need to be sorted, add to blog photo folders

~ Continue reading books that I own. I mentioned on a post back in October that I have multiple books on my bookshelf that I have yet to read or read a second time, and I really want to focus on reading those this month and into December, as well! They really are good books; libraries are just so distracting for me, haha.

Main Things to Accomplish: Read more Poirot short stories, decide on a few full-length books I want to read in November, donate any that I really don’t feel like reading anymore

~ Enjoy spending time with my family. We’ve really been enjoying playing games together, and I want to continue doing that throughout this month. ❤

Main Things to Accomplish: Play board/card games with Joshua and Samuel, find different fun activities to do with Samuel, continue having little photoshoot sessions

~ Work on my blogging schedule. This is a constant to-do and work-in-progress, haha, but it’s worth mentioning, anyway! For a while, I had certain types of posts I did on certain days of the week, but that has since faded away as I’ve started writing different kinds of posts. However, I’d love to see if I could develop a basic post schedule to stick to now (T.R. Noble has inspired me!). I already have some ideas, so we’ll see how that goes.

Main Things to Accomplish: Brainstorm posts for December, work on different inspirational pieces for November, get my blogging planner in order

~ Keep up with language-learning. I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I took a month-long break from learning Spanish in September because I truly needed it, and since then, I have been periodically keeping up with lessons and reviews. Right now, I’m deciding between which three languages I want to pursue, as you’ll see below. (:

Main Things to Accomplish: Master the basics of Brazilian Portuguese, catch up on Spanish review, learn the basics of French


Thank you so much for reading! I am so excited about what I’ll be focusing on this November – it’s going to be a great month. ❤ I hope that you guys have a beautiful November, as well! Have a great week!

How about you?

What are YOU focusing on this November?

  1. Great goals! I have a lot of goals, but I’ll just list some. Add more fruit to my diet; post at least 10 blog posts this month; do and complete at least one challenge; share more of what I’m learning from a book; read another book; transitioning into new job position.

  2. Haha, we have lots of goals in common, although they’re not specifically for this month for me! I’m looking to take more photos, practice piano, and blog!
